Halloween Eve could be a hard sell, unless, I imagine, you’ve got Hellion on the bill. A speed-metal warm-up for the frights to come Friday night, yes? Hellion is an ’80s-minted metal band from L.A., fronted by banshee Ann Boleyn (often credited with coining the phrase “speed metal”) and a crew that’s ridden with the likes of Ozzy, Dio, AC/DC, and UFO. They are touring in support of this year’s New Renaissance record, Karma’s a Bitch. Hellion hits Brick by Brick Thursday night after our own “symphonic metal” sextet Unicorn Death.... From the other end of the musical spectrum, Soda Bar stages Canada band Rural Alberta Advantage, a folk-rock trio out to tout this year’s Mended with Gold. According to Pitchfork, the new collection’s a “rock record” closer to the oft-comp’d Neutral Milk sound. In fact the Pitch insists the singer “sounds more like In the Aeroplane Over the Sea­–era Jeff Mangum than Jeff Mangum himself these days.” July Talk opens the show.... A dance-rock band from Copenhagen, Denmark, New Politics, stumps for “punk, pop, and electronica” and is this week’s “band to watch with Skype.” They will headline sets at House of Blues after Bad Suns and Somekindofwonderful...while Brooklyn buskers-turned national touring act Moon Hooch spill it at the Loft at UCSD. The brass ’n’ drums trio call their brand “cave music”: “It’s like House, but it’s more wild...more natural to live in.”

Garage-rawk greats Beehive & the Barracudas cross the Black Cat Halloween night!

Friday 31
Happy Halloween, creepy Crawler followers. Your horror-show script is writ: after you get all jacked up on candy corn and snack-size Snickers, head your sugar-addled head to Casbah, where San Diego's haunted surf-rock organ-grinders Creepy Creeps will headline sets by the equally-creepy-but-for-a-totally-different-reason Burning of Rome, Cramps cover band Cramped, and garage-rock psychonauts the Schitzophonics.... Best of the rest finds local garage-rawk greats Beehive& the Barracudas out at the Black cat Bar...Hollywood’s heavy-metal mariachi act Metalachi at Brick by Brick with Weezer teasers Geezer and she-punks Chica Diabla...there’s a Smiths/Joy Division Masquerade at Whistle Stop with Smith’s tribute Still Ill...or if you’re in it for the long haul, there’s a ’uge band bill at Til-Two’s Noche de Brujas spooktacular, with (deep breath) Angel Dust, Northern Tigers, Electric Healing Sound, the Natives, Baja Bugs, Blood Hounds, Young Wants, the Cardielles, Gloomsday, Los Ojos, and Batwings...while Soda Bar’s got a crazy covers night, featuring Roxy Jones with Snoop Doggy Dogg, Wild Wild Wets as the Zombies, Ape Machine as Creedence, Sleeping Ghost conjures the Ramones, and the exotic, robotic soundz of Satanic Puppeteer Orchestra. Recommend you check out the Puppeteer’s trick new vid “Frankenstein’s Laundromat."

Garage-pop singer-songwriter Frankie Rose plays the Casbah on Saturday.

Saturday 1
Brooklyn-bred, L.A.-based singer-songer Frankie Rose, formerly a Crystal Stilt, a Dum Dum Girl, and a Vivian Girl, is now Beverly. How does she keep up with herself? I’ll tell you how. She walks the walk with a consistent collection of girl-group garage-pop records, including this year’s Careers, a collaboration with Pains of Being Pure at Heart’s “honey-voiced guitarist” Drew Citron. Rose’s high-water mark, however, is her big-synth solo breakthrough and Monk House fave Interstellar. Give it a spin and we’ll see you on Kettner, as Rose kicks off a West Coast roll at Casbah with SanFran band Cold Beat and L.A. guitar-pop songsmith Devon Williams.... Else: Soda Bar sets up them vintage rockers from Redondo Beach, the Darlings, with “loungecore” Los Angelinos Jason Cruz & Howl...alt-rock God squad Switchfoot washes up at SDSU’s Cal Coast Credit Union Open Air Theatre behind this year’s super-selling Fading West record...while, northa town, Joywave and Leisure Cruise split a dance-pop and hip-hop bill at the Loft in La Jolla...while northa there, former San Diego band Delta Spirit delivers the soulful Americana of this year’s Dualtone record Into the Wide to Belly Up. Sacco, a surfy soul-rock trio of California transplants now living in NYC, will open the show.
